Where does everyone live and how do you like it there?

West side of Cleveland. Great area overall with a sprinkle of the bad. We're a regular city on The First 48 for murder...
 
Seems like the west is heading more and more towards socialism. More govt intervention, more taxes, more inflation , deteriorating social services, even bigger govt, etc. We all collectively sink towards an inferior standard of living. Yet we have learned nothing.
That’s how I see it. What surprises me is that I seem to be more stressed about this than others around me. I honestly think it will get worse- especially in the cities. Salaries are not going up and everything else is.
 
My sister-in-law lives in Escondido. Before when she was single she rented an apt in La Jolla. I love SD for all the reasons everyone does. Especially La Jolla. Definitely crazy expensive w rent/real estate and food/gas. But so close to the beach and always something to do. We considered moving so she can be w her twin. We could afford a nice apt in La Jolla or Encinitas (I really liked the vibe there) but things like vacation/travel would take a hit. Salaries are a little
Higher than here but not enough to totally offset the expenses. And to go from a house w land to a sub 1000sq/ft apt is daunting.

But had some amazing sushi there and loved training at The Gym SD outside. I felt like Arnold in the old days at Venice haha
Look at my picture, I have ESCONDIDO tatted below my belly button with the "D"s crossed out lol (old rival gang diss). If you look at my right top wrist you will see "EV" that stands for ESCO VIEJO/ESCO VARRIO (OLD ESCONDIDO) / (OLD NEIGHBORHOOD) another gang reference also a tribute to the victorian 1800s houses that are exist in the WSG neighborhood.
I have had numerous assassination attempts on my life in my past in escondido. I grew up on the WS I was from the established gang there. MAPLE BLOCK
I lived also in UTC right next to la jolla no comparison! i loved it , pure college kids and wealthy people, very culturally diverse.
Escondido has cleaned up a lot after they put me and all my friends and old enemies on 2 separate gang junctions, we had two major rico sweeps (mx mafia)also that took everyone I grew up with away. Thus making it a criminal act for us to wear certain padres and chargers jerseys, and hats with certain symbols etc. You could also in theory catch your third strike just being in same vehicle as another documented gang member etc etc. And if your dorky cousin was caught walking with you, and you are documented, he was now documented too and there goes their rights. CRAZY. ACLU later fought for us and it was deemed a violation of constitutional civil rights and they were all dropped (same thing happened in LA). I have a love hate relationship with escondido but I will never go back. Thats where I was raided by feds in 2020 as well. Encinitas is a dope ass city in north county as far as coastal/beach but CARLSBAD is the best by far. Moonlight beach is incredible, I went to a satsang at the self realization fellowship there with famous best selling author don Miguel Ruiz (the 4 agreements). and swamis beach (they named after paramahansa) is right there too as well as the mediation gardens! I grew up surfing that beach man , its only 15-20 inland from esco if you take del dios highway. Encinitas is more hippy beach vibe compared to RICH del mar, quiet solana beach, or amazing carlsbad. I just moved from Carlsbad. yes @ apt. I am in SM right now about 2 cities away. Oceanside is like sand diego venice beach its gang infested and full of wierdos and all walks of life, dislike. I lived in VC also semi recently

That’s where I’m at. Winters are hard and summers are brutally hot and crazy humid. Cost of living is cheap but the jobs here don’t pay shit. Too many illegals here working for Pennie’s on the dollar. I’m so sick of these fucking illegals. I may have called a few in last week. A job I was making 3-4 grand a week doing in Washington pays 2000 a month. Houses are not cheap we live in a new 3rd r 2 bath duplex and the want 600,000 for it lol California prices on houses for all the Californians moving here
No one from CA is relocating to SD dude lol
It's literally the least popular state (in terms of relocation) along with ND, Alaska and Delaware.

And the reason a job is paying less is BECAUSE of the lower cost of living.
I can have a job in CA or NYC that might pay me 250-300k. But that same job in say Oregon, Idaho, Utah, etc will nevvver pay me that. That's a fairly well known thing.

everyone in ca is moving to AZ, NM, TX mostly and FL now, many people I grew up with are in AZ and TX especially , some went to COLORADO

this is what I think of when I think of the Dakotas, that and Sitting Bull the last chief (Sioux) to give up arms, and the stories of the US Army/pioneers @ black Mountains upon gold discovery and subsequent shrinking of designated Indian land
 
lol. My sister has a few friends that bought land in TN but not sure where.

lol. You’re right- I was thinking of Northeast. I had to go to Reading a few months back and there was a rest area right before my exit. It was super clean and nice- nothing like the shitty ones on the NJ Turnpike.
Reading is a shithole. Small. But a shithole.
 
I live in SLC, UT. Love it here. it has grown a ton over my lifetime (41) which has made me love it less. If you love the outdoors, here, Denver, boise, Missoula

If you don't want cold weather, maybe Vegas? 4 hours ish from LA, tons of stuff to do off the strip. good gyms, taxes are good? so I am told. a few good smaller cities adjacent to Vegas like Henderson. a few places you can get up into the "hills" that will be a little cooler. a few hot months a year that you stay inside more less, but it beats six cold months where you hide inside and shovel shit snow

What are you looking for in your retirement, things you "NEED" can't live without, hobbies you want to take up
 
used to live in florida.. was great until every new yorker and everybody from the northest moved there during covid... now its the fifth burrow....

too many people... to congested. real estate is through the roof expensive... its basically been destroyed by the contstant building of homes...

would take me 30 min to get from one side of sarasota to the other.now it takes 2 hours...

its practically unlivable.

moved back to the midwest to escape that.....

where i live now is not much better...
One of the reasons I left…

Dallas or Vegas are my next experiments.
 
Reading is a shithole. Small. But a shithole.
I had to look back to see exactly where I went cause it didn’t look like a “shithole”. It was N. Reading Rd. in Ephrata. Like I said, it looked well kept and the rest stop right by there was spotless.

You got some nice ink flows and ehanhances your physique...ever thought about getting something on the traps? I wanna go up more but can't think of anything that fits in there well without getting the neck lol

Always lived in pa or MD. Lots of people back in MD moving to wva for the same reason people are fleeing cali. Thought about it but job, gym, grocery stores, housing, everything is so far apart where in Pa closer to a city everything is closer and still great hiking.
 
Ummm Tennessee is wide open, mild and quick winters, spring and summer most of the year, some of the lowest property taxes in the country, actual affordable homes on huge lots of land, including new construction, incredible hillside views, all the guns and ammo you can handle, illegal for aircrafts to spray overhead metals and aerosols, southern hospitality, genuinely nice people, hot chicken, southern cooking, no weed tho and probably will never be….

All in all though…stay out of Tennessee, you’ll hate it here.😆😬🤞🏾

This sounds really nice.


Even looked up a job 😅
I would be perfect for it

Very few jobs in NYC are paying 250-300k a year. Many of the people who are making that money in NYC are the same ones who are leaving. I have multiple friends who make that money and have already left for NC and Florida. And yes, plenty of Californians are moving to SD as well as Idaho.
 
NOLA… Ummmm you definitely don’t wanna live here.

Housing costs are high, lack of insurance groups around drive the costs even higher. High sales taxes. Lots of trash around the city. Disgusting actually… Crime is through the roof. NOLA always is in the top 5 for murders every year.

There are nice places to live here though. But you’ll pay out the ass to live there with a shitty area right around the corner.

I wanna leave here when I can…. I’m looking to roll to either TN, KY, northern AL, or northern GA.

I’m starting to look at Vegas but maybe a smaller city outside of Vegas. Also maybe other cities in Nevada. Ideally I would live within a few miles to a decent sized town with everything you need. Dont want to deal with winter months anymore.
 
Rural east tx. No big city drama or traffic. Life is slow, people are nice. Pretty much what you expect from Texas 🤷🏻‍♂️
 
Midwest. Great place to raise a family and the pace is just right. Would not want to live anywhere else.
 
I live in Omaha NE, I have been all over the U.S. and this place is actually pretty nice. There are about 400,000 people that live here and I think about an additional 200,000 in surrounding communities. Its one of the top 50 largest cities in the U.S., a lot of Fortune 500 companies have offices here and I think 4 are based out of Omaha, the job market is very good. Its also one of the highest tax states. There is actually a lot of money here due to Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway, I know one year we had the most millionaires per capita in the US. The cost of living is pretty low and that attracts a lot of people from other countries. The economy here is pretty recession proof and really doesn't reflect the economy of the u.s. as a whole.

Pretty much if the guy is from Omaha and been in the UFC I have trained with him, I think there have been like 9 or 10. You can look them up but due to the nature of the board I will not be naming names as these guys are pretty anti-juice. There is only one that I am aware of that I haven't trained with and he is an older guy but a very nice dude and would always chat him up when I have seen him out. So we have some decent MMA schools. I know and have trained with or been trained by men and one woman that have won Muay Thai and Jujitsu at worlds. Also a lot of gyms that are really nice here, with a few guys competing on a national level, not a lot. I know I have talked to people on this site that knew people that were like my training partner at the time when I was younger.
 
Very few jobs in NYC are paying 250-300k a year. Many of the people who are making that money in NYC are the same ones who are leaving. I have multiple friends who make that money and have already left for NC and Florida. And yes, plenty of Californians are moving to SD as well as Idaho.
No one was discussing THE AMOUNT of high paying jobs. That's an irrelevant point that was never the issue.
We were discussing job pay somewhat mirroring cost of living. If the rent is 4k per month in a certain city, you are more likely to be payed a yearly income that can attain that. And vice versa. If cost of living is very low...a la Souix Falls, South Dakota, one can't complain that the annual salary is much lower than that of Seattle, Washington.

And you do realize that there are statistics out there right? Like we can SEE where people from CA are moving to and where they arent moving lol So no, droves of people are not moving to SD, ND, Alaska and Delaware. Are small amounts? Sure, just like ANY place. There are small amounts of people leaving CA to move to Thailand too. And like i mentioned above, those are the LEAST popular destinations that CA residents are leaving to, proven my gov data. Most are moving to AZ, Nevada, Texas, etc.
 
One of the reasons I left…

Dallas or Vegas are my next experiments.

I'm mulling over a job opportunity in Vegas. If you want to come out you can be my Jewish friend.
 
I live in Italy, northern Italy, life is good enough, gyms are shitty, healthcare is awful, life is quite expensive, food is good.
I own a company and earn good money, have a property house.... Can't complain too much, of you earn good you live good everywhere.

Maybe I should move abroad but I am 42 with a family, we are happy here.
No place is perfect unfortunately
